Knit, felt and crochet your way to a colorful Easter basket brimming with eye candy!

I have been teasing my contacts in Flickr the past couple weeks with sneak peaks as egg after egg was completed and added to the basket.

And now it's time for - the big reveal!

I have one embroidered felted egg that I am still wrestling with (the white one with pastel dots in the back!) - but mostly my basket is ready for Easter!

Påskkärringer!

The day that adorable little Easter Witches walk the neighborhoods in Sweden asking for treats and giving hand made Easter cards in return.

It is officially Skätorsdag (Maundy Thursday) in Sweden - in fact by now the day must be nearly done. Certainly all the little witches are safely home and enjoying their loot!

Three Ways to Color Easter Eggs Using One Completely Natural Dye

Greek, Estonian and Russian Easter Eggs

Maybe I should have named this post - An Ode To An Onion Skin!

All of these lovely Easter Eggs - dyed using nothing more than yellow onion skins! How much more natural can you get?

Recently I came across three ways to color eggs for celebrating Easter - Estonian, Russian and Greek! And they all employed the same exact dying agent - yellow onion skins! You know me! I had to try them all. And THAT was too much fun!

Combining Pysanski with Zentangle inspired designs! I loved the idea! Wish it had been mine! But not my idea.

My friend Nancy Kelly suggested that I combine my "Sharpie Faux Pysansky Egg" decorating technique with a few Zentangle inspired doodles! I loved her idea at once! THANK YOU NANCY.
